This Conference will be held in London. It is "For all teachers of numeracy and maths, SENCos and Learning Support teachers, LA inclusion and numeracy support teams and Educational Psychologists." Last year, this meant that only full fledged teachers and Educational Psychologists could attend. Supposedly they were the only ones who would be 'interested' in what was presented. I'm pretty sure that *I* would be interested, too, but my opinion didn't get me an invitation. :/ At any rate, I wanted to post this notice here so that anyone who qualifies and can 'get there' will go see what the professionals are planning for us in the future. There is contact information at the foot of the text. - jus'

Too bad we can't get something like that here in the US!

I agree....I know some of the state chapters of LDA have conferences and I went to one once. But my state's chapter seems pretty inactive - or at least the website is.

But here's a link to the LDA National in Chicago, actually....http://www.ldanatl.org/conference/index.asp
